Abramson To Teach ‘Non-Fiction Journalism’ At Harvard

From the Politico:

Jill Abramson to teach at Harvard

By DYLAN BYERS | June 12, 2014

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson will teach a narrative nonfiction course at Harvard University this fall, the school announced Thursday.

"Abramson will join Harvard University as a Visiting Lecturer for the 2014-2015 academic year," the press release stated. "The 1976 Harvard College graduate will teach undergraduate courses on narrative nonfiction for Harvard’s Department of English in the fall and spring semesters."

How perfect.

In a statement, Abramson said she was "honored and excited to be teaching at Harvard in the coming academic year."

Has she checked to see how much the other visiting lecturers get at Harvard, especially the male ones?

“Narrative nonfiction journalism is more important than ever. Its traditions and how it is changing in the digital transition are fascinating areas of study," she said…

It gets better and better. So she is going to teach narrative non-fiction journalism? Well, maybe an old dog can learn new tricks after all. Or, at least teach them.

Still, the only real surprise here is that she didn’t take a position in the Obama White House. But, then again, maybe Obama doesn’t want to offend Pinch.

    So much for just the facts. Not green friendly using more ink, paper. Ohbombya & Hillary should be fined for their b.s. books.
